, during the clinton administration. was it like what the scandal portrays, involving the president? is that what it is really like in real life? >> well, when you think about it, it is the president of the united states. and of course all eyes are watching you and how you navigate through a crisis. so it was one of those 24/7 non-stop can't make one mistake. >> well, you didn't have -- if you didn't have to deal with that, say twitter and facebook, it must be very different armory to deal with a scandal. let's say for instance, the paul walker tragedy, within minutes, the rumor mill broke, he was doing 150 miles an hour, they were racing, most of it is dismissed out of hand and may all be completely untrue. how do you deal with that particular development in the process of a scandal? >> i think social media has made my job so much more difficult. you know, you can have someone at home blogging in their jammies, and all of a sudden it becomes fact. and it is all over the world and very hard to bring something like that back. >> and i talked to somebody regarding the israeli governm

%. and jeb bush 10.5%: all these men have a chance to run against hillary clinton in 2016. mrs. clinton is far ahead of any democratic challenger and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad economy, it would seem the republicans would have some momentum, but they don't. because there is not one clear message. and even on philosophy, political philosophy, the party is deeply divided. it will take a leader like ronald reagan to help heal that breach. now, if you look at the situation nationwide, it's clear the democrats are going to campaign largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost e

clinton's budget, john kasich made his own budget. he worked with tim penny and they went on the floor in the middle of this debate and they talked for about 30 minutes, 45 minutes about their vision of how to balance the budget and how to move this country forward. so when i went out on the campaign trail, instead of just criticizing bill clinton, when people asked me what would you do? what would you vote for when you got to washington, d.c., i said that i would do what john was talking about doing. we didn't like hillary's health plan so we had two or three different republican ideas for health-care plans. newt helped put together the contract with america so we went out and we had a positive on the constructive approach in the campaign. and it made a big difference. you remember earl hutto? you served with him. i ran against a 16-year incumbent, a democrat named earl hutto came from a district that hadn't elected a republican since 1873. and they hung the last republican they sent up to washington, d.c. vote for me. even we had ideas. you are laughing because you agree with my dad.

a chance to run against hillary clinton in 2016. mrs. clinton is far ahead of any democratic challenger and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad economy, it would seem the republicans would have some momentum, but they don't. because there is not one clear message. and even on philosophy, political philosophy, the party is deeply divided. it will take a leader like ronald reagan to help heal that breach. now, if you look at the situation nationwide, it's clear the democrats are going to campaign largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost entirely and concentrate on the economy and

suggesting that the clintons were pimping out their daughter. so if you attacked a liberal, that was unacceptable but attacking sarah palin, that was fine. so i agree with kirsten on this one. there is definite double-standard. jon: kirsten, you and sarah palin probably don't share too many political philosophies. you did grow up in alaska i know. what do you think about the way she has handled it? >> she has handled it exactly right way. she accepted the apology. been gracious about it. i think as she said she is probably become a little bit inured to these kinds of attacks because they're, have been so over the top and insane for so long. this one does seem to almost, i mean, this one may actually take the cake i think of all the attacks on sarah palin but i think she just, you know, she accepted the apology and said move on. >> all right. we are going to leave it there. thanks for joining us there today for this coverage of the, of media coverage i guess you could say. >> thank you. >> judy miller, kirsten powers. thank you both. >> thank you. jenna: stunning new develop
